The Wildlife Picture Index (WPI) was developed jointly by the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Zoological Society of London as an indicator derived from primary camera trap data (O'Brien et al 2010). The WPI was designed to meet the requirements of biodiversity monitoring indexes as described by Buckland et al. (2005), and it monitors ground-dwelling tropical medium and large mammals and birds, species that are important economically, aesthetically and ecologically. The WPI Analytics System harnesses the power of cutting-edge technologies to make Big Data applicable to real world problems. It speeds up TEAM Network data collection, management and analysis efforts, and its unique interface allows users to create custom WPI data sets.
